Adapt issue overview for all users

Added by Plastik Schnitzer 2 months ago

Hi all,

if I want to adapt my issue overview, for example add fields which are not shown in the default view etc, I can easily do that with the options shown above the issue list and apply it.

How can I change this default view and apply my individual adations for all users and not just me for the default view? Especially for non-technical users, who cannot du such changes on their own (yes, they exist), a global change option would be a perfect workaround.

Any idea? Is that possible?

Best regards,

Sebastian Depke

FYI and FTR: when filters are applied to the issue list (and the gantt and calendar for that matter), you'll be creating a custom query (more specifically a custom issue query) that is in-memory (i.e. not saved in the database). When that query is subsequently saved (which is possible from the issues list and the gantt), it becomes a custom query more formally as it will be saved in the database (as a "query" entity of the [STI] type IssueQuery).

Starting with Redmine 5.0.0 there is a thought out feature implemented to provide a solution for such needs. From #7360#note-85:

Now you can set the default issue query per app/project/user. The project-level default query always overrides the app-level one, and the user-level one always overrides the project-level and app-level ones.

You can configure default queries in the following places:

  • App-level: Administration > Issue tracking > Default Query
  • Project-level: Settings (project) > Issue tracking > Default issue query
  • User-level: My account > Default issue query

FWIW: a similar solution is provided in 5.0.0 for the project list and its corresponding custom project queries (which are saved in the database as "query" entities of the [STI] type ProjectQuery). See issues #29482 (4.1.0) and #35795 (5.0.0) for more information.

P.S. Another, third query type that Redmine core implements is the TimeEntryQuery. These can also be saved in the database from the spent time lists (as "query" entities of the [STI] type TimeEntryQuery). Though there is no feature that provides options to set default spent time queries nor is there any request for such AFAIK.
Yet, you can however adjust the default configuration (columns and totals) for the timelog list per #26356 (4.0.0) just like you can for the issues list per r785 (0.6.0, released 2007-11-04).

Thank you VERY much!

I see Version 5.0.0 and its options is the answer for this question.

Thank you!
